Amending Your State Return

Follow these steps to amend your state return from your TaxAct account. Desktop/Download users may need to update to the newest version of the software.

  1. Locate a copy of your originally-filed return. If you didn’t print or save your return when you e-filed, you will need to obtain a copy from the IRS or your state tax agency.
  2. Review your returns and determine what corrections you need to make.
  3. Return to the Q&A interview and modify, add, or delete the information that needs amending. Make a note of each item you are changing and the reason for each change as you will need these notes to complete the amendment.
  4. From within your TaxAct return (Online or Desktop), click State, then click the applicable state name. On smaller devices, click in the upper left-hand corner, then click State.
  5. Click Amended Return (If you don't see the option listed, click to expand Miscellaneous Topics as it may be located there).
  6. The program will proceed with the interview questions for you to enter or review the appropriate information.
